There never was a season so favor
able for building and making im

as this one has been, and the activity
around the Murray lumber yard is an
evidence of this fact. More of all
grades of lumber is being sold this
spring than for many seasons. The
demand for good goods and the fact
that it can always be found at this
lumber yard at the right prices are
the causes for the increased business.
Mr. Kikendall is after the lumber
business of this locality, not only from
the fact that it is duo him, but be
cause he is ready and willing to meet
all competition on the numerous
grades of lumber.

Yesterday afternoon at 5 o'clock,
at the Holy Angels Catholic church in
Chicago, occurred the marriage of
Miss Clara Ruehland of that city and
Mr. Albert J. Schuldice of Platts
mouth. The solemn and impressive
service of the Catholic church was

was attended by only the relatives of
the bride and a few intimate friends
Following the wedding the bride and

They will spend a week or ten days in
the Windy City before departing for
this city, where the groom has a
handsome new home on North
Seventh street awaiting the coming of
his helpmate. ,
Both of the contracting parties are
well known in this city, as the bride
spent her childhood days here and
removed some fifteen years ago to
Omaha with her parents and later
moved to Chicago, where she has
made her home for a number of
years and is held in the deepest af
fection by a large circle of warm
friends. The groom is a son of Mr.
Albert H. Schuldice of this city, and
was born and reared here and is a
young man of great industry and is
held in very high esteem by all who
know him. He has been employed in
the Burlington shops in this city for
a number of years and is held very
highly by his associates there. Mr.
and Mrs. Schuldice, on their return
here, will receive the best wishes of
their many friends for a long and
happy married life and one free
from care and sorrow.

Puis & Gansemer,
FINED FOR SPEED
ING HIS HORSE
Ofl THE STREETS
From Wednesday's Dally.
Last evening August Petoreit, who
is employed on the farm of Frank
Steppat, west of this city, created
considerable excitement by his ex
hibition of horsemanship that resulted
in his being taken in by Chief of Po
lice Barclay for his own safety, as
well as that of the public. The man
started his horse up North Fourth
street about 7 o'clock on the dead run
and turned on the corner of Vine
street at breakneck speed and c6n
tinued on down Vine street until he
reached the postoffice, where the
horses tumbled and fell, throwing him
off with much force onto the pave
ment. This, however, did not daunt
the man, for as soon as he recovered
from the effects of the fall he started
out Chicago avenue at the same rate
of speed and came near running over
a lady who was crossing the avenue
at Marble street, and he was swaying
from side to side in the saddle, being
greatly under the influence of liquor.
While he was carrying on his wild ex
hibition on the avenue the chief of
police overhauled him and he was
broukht back to the city and placed in
the jail to rest up from his spree, and
this morning was fined $5 and costs,
as well as receiving a severe lecture
on the folly of his conduct. The fine
and costs were paid and the man al
lowed to go, but he will probably be
more careful in the future, and it is
really a wonder that he was not
killed or badly injured in his wild
Time to Pay Up.
Owing to the fact that we have dis
solved partnership, all our business
matters must be settled up as soon
as possible, and in order to complete
matters we must have our book ac
counts settled up just as soon as pos
sible If you are indebted to the firm
please call and settle same now.
